Soccer recreational league overview

Welcome to CDC Soccer!

Recreational soccer is primarily devoted to the enjoyment and development of soccer players without the emphasis on travel or high-level competition.  The purpose of recreational soccer is to provide an opportunity for the participants to have fun, learn the sport and develop life skills including a lifelong love of the game.

Carmel Dads' Club offers soccer leagues for boys and girls starting at age 4 through high school.

Travel Club players and ISL card holders are not permitted.

Soccer has two seasons:
·         Fall, which runs mid August through October
·         Spring, which runs April through early June

Children participating in the PreK league must turn 4 by April 1st for the spring season and by Sept 1st for the fall season.

Co-ed Leagues  Boys Leagues Girls Leagues
 PreK  1st Grade 1st Grade
 Kindergarten 2nd Grade 2nd Grade
 9th-12th Grade 3rd/4th Grade 3rd/4th Grade
  5th/6th Grade 5th/6th Grade
  7th/8th Grade 7th/8th Grade

CDC offers Soccer in both the Spring and Fall. The Spring Season runs mid-April through late May. The Fall Season starts mid-August and runs to mid October.  No games are scheduled during fall break. 

Sport Fee: $105 per season.  In addition to the sports fee, families are asked to pay a membership fee of $50 once per year.  All families are required to volunteer during the season, but can choose to opt-out of volunteering by paying $25.

Carmel Dads' club requires every family to pay $25 or work a two-hour shift in the concession stand for a sporting event.  Athletes whose parents serve as a league commissioner, head coach or team sponsor are exempt from this requirement.


Registration for Spring is open early January through late February.
Registration for Fall is open Early May – Mid-June.

Special requests are taken into consideration such as practice dates, side of town, coach request, and buddy request; however, sport fees cannot be refunded after DATE in the event we are not able to accommodate your requests.

 *Refund Policy – If you register your child(ren) for one of our sports programs and then opt for them not to participate, refund requests are granted AS LONG AS the refund request is made during that sport season’s regular open registration period.  Refunds are NOT given if requested after open registration unless there is a medical reason you child cannot participate.  For more information or if you have questions or concerns regarding this refund policy, please contact the office.

All of the divisions are “house league” teams.  They play only other CDC teams.  For divisions PreK-4th, games are held at Badger Field for families that register for the east side of Carmel and at Shelborne Field for families that register for the west side.  Older divisions (5th-12th) are not guaranteed side of town. 

All leagues will have one practice per week and Saturday/Sunday games except for the PreK and Kindergarten Leagues.  These age groups will have 15 minutes of practice prior to each Saturday/Sunday game. 

Practice nights and locations are at a public location, set at the discretion of the coaches. This is just one of the benefits of volunteering to coach your child's team.

CDC will provide uniform jerseys and socks.  Players are asked to supply their own ball, shorts, shin guards, soccer cleats (optional for younger age groups).

There is an additional assessment for the travel teams.  Players will be selected by team tryouts.
